My school is a large Title I school where eighty percent of the students live below the poverty line. My students are racially, academically, and economically diverse. Many of them face situations that no child should ever face, like being temporarily homeless. Yet, they are also hardworking, enthusiastic young people full of potential and possibilities. They have lots of life and energy.
They love to learn, especially in new and exciting ways, and they recognize that they are part of a larger, generous community.
Please consider helping me to make this their best year ever!
For the first time in twenty years of being an educator, I will be teaching both math and science. This week I did two experiments with my students and they loved them. Therefore, I would like this year's science and math classes to be filled with hands on, STEM activities. One such activity would be to use our classroom Legos on a Lego Wall built with the requested baseplates.
By building a Lego wall my students will have the opportunity to build and create Lego constructions that tie into what they are learning.
For instance, we could create a place value chart out of Legos when studying place value.
I have no doubt that engaging in architectural designs related to their learning will enhance their education. Besides, what kid doesn't like to play with Legos?
